More than Words
Again my Paris Nouveau set was put to use, for the Merci, the border strip, the label and the flower spray. Crafty Individuals CI-258 (it seemed perfect for a speech therapist) was stamped onto an alcohol inked background. I tried to replicate a coral/pink alcohol inked background I made previously, but the colours were too warm so I ended up going for a brown/orange combination rather than coral/pink card.
I used Waltzing Mouse Sketch 105 as inspiration for the design of the card. As you can see the little circle on the upper left was not part of the sketch, but I wanted to add this locket which has a picture of Simon inside. It seemed to need some form of a mount and the mount didn't look balanced within the panel. Behind the locket it reads "More than Words". I'm not entirely happy with it but I had to deliver it first thing this morning so I had no time to tweak it.
